Mathematical Reasoning Journal
Using a 5 step process, students learn to organize their thinking and understanding of mathematical problems. Every two-page spread is intended for one problem, and provides 1) space to write the question or facts; 2) 1 cm grid space to use one or more strategies to solve the problem; 3) lines to write math terminology; 4) a larger area in which to justify your solution by explaining your reasoning; and 5) space in which to apply your solution to another problem or situation. There are enough pages (80) to do 40 problems and makes a nice companion to your math curriculum. ~ Donna
